I like dogs as much as the next guy, but this is just dumb.
In this canine love story, ring around the collar was the intended effect.
Scruffy Rubin and Snickers Carter had a wedding many couples dream of, featuring 100 guests, a wedding cake, open bar, receptionist and even security. But while the newlyweds are reportedly happy together, that are not actually human.
The Desert Sun reports that actual humans Ernie Rubin and Ann Carter got together to throw Scruffy and Snickers a $5,000 wedding at the Palm Desert Resort Country Club in Palm Desert, Calif., on Sunday.
“I’m not losing a son, I’m gaining a daughter-in-law,” Carter told the paper.
The ceremony was officiated by “priest” Harry Farber, who wore a black collar featuring novelty dog bones.
As the two dogs—dressed in custom couture dress and doggie tuxedo—walked down a faux grass carpet aisle , they were accompanied by a ring bearer, flower boy, groomsman and usher. However, it’s worth noting that the groomsman was a Pug named Max.
Actually, the humans involved did make it a charity event with guests being asked to contribute to the Orphan Pet Oasis Humane Society of the Desert in North Palm Springs. Still, I think they might have been able to do something for animals that didn’t involve spending $5000 on a wedding the dogs neither understood or appreciated. As I said, I like dogs, but dogs are not human. They do not think like humans. In particular, dogs do not usually get married.
